Kyaw Thet is a 14-year-old boy from Burma, where he currently attends school. While riding on his motorbike, he got into an accident. Kyaw Thet sustained a broken leg, external wounds on his legs and the back of his head, and internal injuries.
He underwent surgery and followup treatment in two hospitals in Burma. After he was discharged from the hospital, Kyaw Thet still experienced urinary dysfunction. With support from Watsi, Kyaw Thet has undergone several helpful procedures to treat his urological condition. However, he is once again experiencing difficulty urinating.
Kyaw Thet has been diagnosed with bladder trauma. His doctor has decided to dilate his urethra through a urethrotomy procedure. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Kyaw Thet’s procedure on January 25.
Kyaw Thet says, “I thought I would not need any more surgeries. I am very sad because it keeps on coming back. I hope this will be the last time. I can’t wait to get back to normal life.”
